Post Election 2016

I had to go home from work yesterday because I started crying during Hillary's (and then Obama's) speech. In a government office where CNN is constantly on, I couldn't escape it. I cried for my sister, who (due to pre-exisiting conditions) will probably lose her health care in the coming months, if Obamacare is repealed.… Continue reading Post Election 2016

In the dark

I'm back. Its late. I have all the lights off. I really don't want to be alone right now. I don't wanna be a single mom right now. I really don't wanna write too much because I know my mom reads my blog now and I don't want her to worry. There were 15 messages on my… Continue reading In the dark

Cowardice

Rooferman filed a motion to recuse the judge who is presiding over our case. I figured this would happen, so its really not that surprising. It just shows what a dickless coward he is. Its kind of insulting to the Judge as well, since basically Rooferman is telling him he doesn't think he can do… Continue reading Cowardice

Steady

Rooferman tried to weasel me out of more time last night. He called 30 minutes before I was to pick up LB, saying they were at a restaurant and they just barely got their food, so it would be really nice if we could keep her a little longer.  Just barely? It was 7:00 pm.… Continue reading Steady

Intimidation

Thanks to April and SWM, who suggested I actually take the time to investigate the FACTS. I called to check out my case file. No response has been submitted. No parenting class has been completed on his part. He hasn't petitioned for custody and still hasn't made any attempts to see LB or call. He may threaten to… Continue reading Intimidation

Abandonment

Remember this post? Remember how frustrated I was and attempting to be the "tough" mom? Well I finally figured out what was wrong this weekend. My first assumption was the season change, which still could be a factor. I then decided to blame my daycare (of course!) for letting LB sleep 2-3 hours during her nap.… Continue reading Abandonment

Golden Year = Overcoming fear

Well I did it. I submitted my petition for custody to the courts. The judge is reviewing my case to see if I qualify to have the $212 fee waived. Next its off to serve Rooferman and get the ball rolling. Tomorrow I am sitting in on a custody case, represented by the lawyer who is… Continue reading Golden Year = Overcoming fear

single mom, writing

Thanks

Thanks to Ms Single Mamafor bestowing on me the first blogging award I've ever won. Thanks for everyone else's comments on probably the most unflattering entry I've written in a while, but unless you are living in the sadistic world of Hollywood horror films, fear really isn't sexy at all. Click here if you want to take a glimpse into… Continue reading Thanks
